OMG!!! Wow, that is just beautiful.  Where did you take the class?  Is it a college class, adult ed?  I wish I could find something like that where I live. 
I love all of the different patterns and colors.

Thanks for all of the comments!! Smiley
The class was a college class I am an art major and it fulfilled a requirement for my degree and a several years long obsession with fiber in all of its forms Smiley It took pretty much forever, like maybe a month and 1/2.  All of the yarn is hand painted too, which was a lot of work but soo worth it because i got to get the colors just right.  I signed up for intermediate weaving for next semester and am sooooo excited about it.

It was a counterbalance loom, not sure who it was made by, its an older loom from my weaving classroom... some of the looms we worked on were from the early 1900's when the school was first founded.  Though I don't think this loom is quite that old Smiley
